AbstractThe wasp bees (Nomada) of the Netherlands (Hymenoptera: Apidae)
In the Netherlands 44 species of Nomada are known to occur. The name wasp bee is derived
from the often yellow and black colour, which give the insects a wasplike appearance. Nomada
bees are cleptoparasites mostly with Andrena species. The eggs are laid in the nest of the host
and the Nomada larvae destroys the egg of the host and feeds on the pollen supply. In this paper
a key to the males and females of the Netherlands and surrounding area is given. In the species
descriptions information is given on the morphology, distribution, hosts, flower visits, fenology
and red list status.
